Art Vs Artist 2022 #artvsartist2022, #comicstrips, #cartoonist, #artist

Good morning and happy Monda--- errrrr Tuesday. Yeah, these four day work weeks always throw me off. lol :)

As the year winds down, I've put together one of those "art vs artist" graphics that get posted at this time of the year. 

2022 was not a high output year - I started the year with high hopes - that I could conclude the Lone Apple/Squeeze story that I started in autumn 2021 (yikes! that looks terrible when I write it out). I hadn't been 100% happy with the strips and felt that I could expand a bit and I did. So I re-did the original strips and added some additional bits to expand the story. My favorite part of the 'expansion' was the whole series of "bib" strips. One of those is included in the "art vs artist" graphic below and you can see the whole saga (so far) in the gallery to the right. 

Unfortunately due to an extended grueling time at work (this went on for nearly 10 months) and a house hunt, I had to put MEMO aside. I was pretty bummed about it but did what I could when I could. Thankfully, once I started to shift some things in my life, I had a little bit of a renaissance this autumn and came up with some really terrific stuff. It's been more sporadic than I'd like, but am just happy that I'm creating again! And, on top of it, I got a little freelance design work - two neat projects that I was VERY happy with. :)

Anyway, it's anyone's guess what 2023 will bring, but I hope you'll come back to find out what's new in the wonderful world of MEMOs! :)

Quote of the Day #bobdylan, #freedom, #vaccination

Good afternoon and happy Tuesday! 

Today I am reminded of a Bob Dylan quote -  "A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom." 

Seems lately that Americans have forgotten that. We want 'freedom' but don't understand the responsibility of freedom. 

You are not free to spread a deadly virus, for example. 

Get vaccinated so that we can finally be done with Covid. The longer you persist in your selfishness, the longer we will have to endure this. 

On Thursday, July 22nd I will acknowledge the 500th day since I started working from home; something that was supposed to last about four to six weeks. At the time, I was like 'wow, that's a long time'... to that memory,  I say HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAHAHAHAHAHA! if only it had only been that long. Had everyone cooperated, we could have been done by last summer. But nope, people are morons. 

Grrr.
